Delta's immigration foxtrot

Who said Delta Goodrem couldn't get arrested in the US? Apparently, she nearly did when she "drew the ire" of immigration officials who didn't like the way she was dressed. And they didn't even hear her sing ...

Britney's secrets revealed

Britney Spears started drinking at 13, lost her virginity at 14 and was experimenting with drugs at 15. All this comes from her mother, apparently, in a new book. Somebody should get Terri Irwin a copy.

Kylie locks horror

She's changed her hair colour in the lead-up to her Australian tour.
PS: The Daily Mail also reveals that Joan Rivers looks like The Joker after her latest facelift. Cue another excuse for a Heath Ledger reference and photo.

Not so Mellow Yellow

A friend writes:

Got quite excited about this when I saw the headline: "Donovan plans new album comeback" ... only to be sorely disappointed when I found out which Donovan was being referred to...

Yes, they meant Jason Donovan, not the mono-monickered star of the 1960s and 70s. The story he refers to is here.

Another Amy Winehouse debacle

Amy Winehouse is ill. She is an addict and she needs help. I know that; the world knows that. So what were the organisers of France's Rock En Seine thinking when they booked her to headline their festival? It's no surprise that she pulled out with just two hours' notice. The only surprise is that the organisers are surprised.

Jacko's 50th no thriller

Michael Jackson has just 50 and is now America's second most-famous pyjama wearer after Hugh Hefner. In an AP interview, he said his plan was to celebrate with cake and cartoons. He also spoke about providing a "normal life" for his children. Well, it's a bit late for that ...

Led Zep lives

Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham are working on new material. I know the band's reunion last year was huge, but will they ever recapture the magic - especially without the input of frontman Robert Plant? More here.

Absolutely Stavulous

Brisbane radio station B105's breakfast team of Labrat, Camilla, Stav and Tash (the newsreader) have formed a band called Stavulous, and they will be performing Green Day's When I Come Around at the Ekka on Wednesday, August 13. You have been warned.
PS: Here's something else of interest on the airwaves.

Wolfmother: three now one

What's a trio after two members leave? A solo act? Well, the immediate departure of bass and keyboard player Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett from Wolfmother leaves just Brisbane boy Andrew Stockdale in the Grammy-winning band. However, he is apparently looking for other musicians - so whip out your CVs and soundchecks, folks. The departing duo have issued a statement to fans asking them "to please understand that in spite of their best efforts over a long period of time, they just could not find a harmonious way to work together and that has lead [sic] to the decisions announced today". I assume we will be hearing more of this story.
PS: There's more here.

Farewell, Reg Lindsay

As the now-grown-up kid who used to watch Reg Lindsay's Country Homestead on television (and, I admit, finding it just a little daggy), I was sad to hear of Lindsay's passing. There's more here.
